Ten p.m. on a Friday night, and we are hanging around waiting for Dominos to deliver.  Why are we eating so late, you may ask?  Oh, only because we have been busy hauling in TWO FULL TRUCKLOADS of new-to-us furniture into our house!  I love

It all started when we decided to sell the bunkbeds that we have had for the past 17 or so years.  They were used off and on through the years, and have been taking up space in our storage for most of our years in Syracuse.  We hauled them up and put them in Olivia's room a few months ago, and she loved having them, but they were really just too big for her room.  And Olivia and Will both need new mattresses, so we listed the bunkbeds on KSL.  In the process of listing them, I just happened to be browsing through the couch section, and had a brilliant idea to find something affordable to put downstairs for the kids to live on.

Enter fate.

We found a couch, a chair and an ottoman that we were really interested in.  So we went to look, and knew right away we wanted to buy it. The people selling that set also just happened to mention  a sectional they were selling, so we took a peek at that before we left.  It turned out to be only  the most perfect and beautiful sectional in Utah! And an absolute exact fit for our upstairs room.   It was such a good buy I could not pass it up.  Funny how we have spent the past four years looking all over for just the perfect piece, and even wound up buying one that was less than perfect, just because we were so tired of looking. And then, when we aren't even looking, the very thing we were searching for just fell into our laps.  Well, not exactly fell.  It did require quite a bit of heavy lifting, angling, maneuvering, cursing, etc. to get everything into place, but now all of our adopted furniture is home, and we have two cozy, comfy family rooms to enjoy.

As a side note, Olivia is losing no sleep over her new bedless status.   You have never seen a kid more excited to sleep on a mattress on the floor. She is begging for us NOT to get her a new bed.  It is a new adventure in roughing it.
